Life

Almost Half a Century (Paris Next Year)

Celebrating 49 years on this earth today. I feel like I’m 25 years old.  My heart and my spirit is light and amazing. I’m in a space where my life is also my purpose. I look forward to creating the message that I’ve been living, growing, and experiencing every year. I hope to serve and be of value to people who are reaching for their dreams and can make an impact in this world.

In the coming year keep your eyes peeled for a Youtube channel, podcast, webinars, and a book. Eventually, bambooshoot will add on one or two Enrichment Excursions.  Paris is the first excursion that I want all of you t to come with me in 2019. Let’s discover Paris together.

I look back in my 49 years and have had ups an downs along the way.  There have been decisions that I regret and there have been eye opening events.  I am so blessed to be surrounded by supportive friends and family as I trod this journey of becoming a speaker, trainer, and coach.

I have an upcoming training for people who would like to improve their speaking and connecting with their audience: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/from-the-stage-to-synergy-tickets-42800793325?aff=bambooshoot

Closeups and Cameras

I don’t feel like I am ready to do a photo shoot.  I feel vulnerable in front of a camera.  Despite my confidence on stage when I speak or when I conduct training with a group my old demons of being a teenager comes out.

The sad story of a girl with a disability never had dates, never went to the prom, didn’t deserve to have straight teeth – “Who would want to marry or even date her?” I was constantly bullied in the shadows or whispers.

When someone in college said I was pretty, I gravitated towards that and was taken advantage of again and again and again. I finally let go of all that stress on the day I was married. No more being judged, no more being criticized but it didn’t stop. The criticisms never end because the voices from the past keep coming back like a ghost.

Now I look at my wrinkles and my fat and thank God for Photoshop. Then again, should I show you what I look like with all my flaws?  I’m already teetering on one leg with crutches in front of you.

Despite all of my flaws, I am content.  I am in a career I love.  I have jewelry and a clothing business that gives back to families and nonprofits. I love my husband, kids, dog, house, church, community (Mililani), networking groups (especially BNI), clients, etc.  I have so much to be grateful for.  That may show up in the photos and that may not.  I know that this contentment is in my heart.

I’m only a $1000 away from earning a trip to Paris.  I’ve never been out of the country. You can help me get to Paris.  Share my page and of course purchasing any jewelry pieces.  Think of Valentine’s Day!

The sales of jewelry, clothing, training, or coaching helps to keep this contentment. Thank you so much for your support and purchase!
